During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work.

O wende dich zu Jesus hin

Representative Text

1 O wende dich zu Jesus hin,
zu Ihm, zu Ihm allein!
Dann bringt Sein Leben dir Gewinn,
du wirst errettet sein.

2 O hänge an die Welt dich nicht,
nur trüglich gibt sie Glück;
zu Jesus kehr dein Angesicht
und blicke nicht zurück!

3 Du kannst nie wahrhaft glücklich sein,
bleibst du dem Heiland fern.
O Mensch geh doch zum Frieden ein,
nimm Jesus an als Herrn!

4 Selbst wird dein Sterben dann Gewinn,
es bringt dir ewges Glück.
Drum wende dich zu Jesus hin:
Du willst nie mehr zurück!
